Mixed Reviews... Promising And Not-So-Good News

Well, it was an exhausting day of Marathon Doctor's Appointments for The Man and Princess T with Mixed Reviews, Promising and Not-So-Good News... but we'll continue to Celebrate even the Smallest of Victories and remain Hopeful.
She had improved some on Respiratory function enough to be temporarily taken off one of the Meds she has had to take several times a day and a reduction in Breathing Treatments.  However, we still have the Hospitalization next week with some important Tests which will reveal whether or not she will require a Surgery, so we're guardedly Optimistic.

And The Man's Appointment revealed that he's still making Progress in the right direction, though it will be a long tough road to Recovery.  So... to Celebrate the Promising News we went directly to one of our Fav Downtown Haunts for Lunch since we were already in the City, THE OLD SPAGHETTI FACTORY.  Where else can you feed a family of four hungry folks an Entree, Salad, Soup, Fresh Bread, Drinks and Dessert, all for under forty bucks!?! 
And for us Lovers Of Old, you can't beat the Ambiance of being surrounded by Old World Charm, and the Atmosphere of Fabulous Antiques and Architectural Salvage to Die for while Enjoying a good Meal!!!  The G-Kid Force were Delighted that we got one of the Private little Dining Rooms resplendant with loads of Stained Glass and Leaded Glass Windows, Art, Antique Chandies, Velvet Drapes and a Library of Old Books.  Yes... it was a pretty Good Day... I Hope you had one too my Friends?!

  1. Oh dear Dawn....looks like things are still a little "uncertain" in your world. I do hope everyone gets better in due time. BTW.....Love, love, the old Spaghetti Factory in downtown Phx.....have been there many a time.

    hugs to you,


  2. In life, we have to take the good with the bad. I see though that you are doing the right thing and focusing on the good, the present, and the hope for better times. There is no alternative.

  3. It's been a l-o-n-g time since I've been to an old Spaghetti Factory! Celebrating the good in your reports...hoping with you for improvement and pleasant surprises re. the rest.

  4. I have been following your blog for a yr or so..and want to say..You are a awesome person!!You let nothing put limits on following your DREAM!!!..Keep on keeping on!!!!

  5. As you say, a bit of everything.

    I wish you well, all of you. I know what good health and the lack of it mean to us and how we need to treat ourselves to the small pleasures to make the big problems bearable.

    Good luck.

  6. Wishing you good news in the upcoming weeks regarding all of the health issues you're dealing with! And this post made me miss the Old Spaghetti Factory! We don't have one near us anymore; it was one of my favorite special treats as a child when my parents took us there.

    1. Kimberly, couldn't find a Blog for you so I want to Thank You here in the Comment Section for coming for a Blog Visit. If you're ever in Phoenix stop by our Old Spaghetti Factory, I've been going there since the early 1970's and it's one of my Favs and brings back heavy doses of Nostalgia and Fond Memories of Good Times that go back Decades.
